Book Review #2 – The Art of Racing In The Rain

Posted Jan 13 2010 12:00am

First of all, thanks to all your great wrap fixin’ suggestions! All I want for lunch this week is to try out each and every one of your suggestions :) Oh, and if you missed them, check out the goods. Sweet wraps, savory wraps. Salsa-fied wraps. You name it, I’m totally tempted to try it!

The Huz and I went to Costco on Saturday and, as usual, I couldn’t help stopping by the book section for a quick perusal. At one point, I had four or five books in our cart, but I managed to narrow it down to one – The Art of Racing in the Rain. The last puppy book I read was Marley & Me, which made me cry like a baby. I’d seen The Art in the stacks several months ago and was intrigued, but I firmly believe that sometimes books come into your life at just the right time. I’d passed this one by before, but this time it was meant to come home with me.

After the rest of our errands, we spent a lazy afternoon at home watching football, making homemade soup, and spending time with a family friend. With football finished and a belly full of pasta and chickpeas, I hunkered down for some quality reading time. And wouldn’t you know, I didn’t move from the couch for almost four hours. I positively devoured this book, flying through the pages, committing the words, characters and scenes to memory.

I probably should have known that I was in for a tear jerker after the first chapter had my mascara running and my nose sniffling but I can honestly say I loved every page of this book and I believe any pet owner or dog lover would too. I want so much to tell you all about the story, but I don’t want to ruin a single sentence for you. It’s Wednesday, now, and I’m still replaying scenes in my mind. I will say that Denny and Enzo are two of the sweetest, most genuine characters you’ll find in a book today and I know they’ll remain in my heart.

Have you read a book that stays with you for days or weeks after you read it?

Oh and if you missed my first book review of the year, check out my opinion of My Life In France!
